Magic Mushrooms Can Treat Addiction and Depression
A new research study has revealed that magic mushrooms contain a substance called psilocybin which can be useful to treat addiction, anxiety and depression. But, the researchers warn that psilocybin can also cause delusions and paranoia.
Some participants in the study even said they experienced a mystical and spiritual feeling after a dose of psilocybin. Other participants reported improved behavior, mood and attitude.
However, the researchers warn that intake of the drug should be supervised by trained personnel. Usually, psilocybin is used to treat terminally sick patients suffering from anxiety and depression. Alcohol addicts also use the drug for relief.
